Breaking: Jets Release CB Quincy Wilson

Today, the New York Jets cut cornerback Quincy Wilson. The team acquired him in a draft-day trade with the Indianapolis Colts.

Originally, Wilson backed up Colts teammate Pierre Desir as the fourth cornerback on the depth chart. Ultimately, he only played three games in the green and white. In three games, he recorded one tackle.

Quincy Wilson has had an up and down career.

In 2017, the Indianapolis Colts drafted Wilson out of Florida in the second round. He had an up and down year. Wilson recorded 22 tackles, one interception, and six pass defenses.

In 2018, Wilson began to trend upwards. Overall, it was a good year for the Colts defense. He recorded 28 tackles, one interception, two pass defenses, and one fumble recovery. Wilson allowed a passer rating of 82.7 and 6.9 yards per target. He also allowed only one touchdown.

In 2019, Quincy Wilson’s stock began to fall. The Colts’ defensive scheme became more zone coverage based, leading to Wilson’s demise. He allowed 9.7 yards per target and a passer rating of 139.6. Wilson also allowed a completion rating of 72 percent.

The Jets ended up trading Wilson for a 2020 seventh-round pick. It looks like rookie cornerback Bryce Hall could be seeing the field soon. Hopefully, he’s a bright spot.
